“All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.”
“Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.”
“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”
“For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.”
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
“He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.”
“He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.”
By faith we are able to accept the providence of Christ’s sacrifice which includes that as we are resurrected with Jesus Christ and sitting at the right hand of the Father in Christ Jesus; this is true as we become one with Jesus as redeemed ones by the blood. There is a time of perfecting, so do not worry for the process might be long; this is why we must not judge people as they go through the time of perfecting. Things will show up in your life that are not godly, often it is God’s way of bringing your attention to things we must conquer in order to attain the goal; Jesus Christ.
Therefore we must during this process tag our thoughts, words, and actions; by tagging I mean deciding which ones were influences of the flesh and which were of the Holy Spirit. Then we are to confess and repent of the works of the flesh deciding to depend on what Christ through the Holy Spirit can do instead of the works of our hands. Remember
Works of the flesh: Death and damnation; Tree of Knowledge, depending on what we know.
Works of the Holy Spirit; Life Eternal; Tree of Life, Jesus Christ, depending on what God knows and has promised.
Here are some books I wish to recommend for this wonderful journey of faith; you will never be the same:
1. Blessings And Curses; Derek Prince: ISBN 978-0-8007-9349-8, $8.99.
2. The Authority Of The Believer; John A MacMillian: ISBN 978-1-60066-083-2, $12.99.
3. Marriage Covenant; Derek Prince: ISBN 978-0-88368-781-9, $8.99.
These books give a great insight to what the glorious church needs to look like and in the process give you the tools for our journey towards eternity.
May the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all forever in Jesus name. Amen.
